Christmas store fun.
We had a blast in our free store this season. Families came and shopped for their kids. Smiles and tears were common as we served and cared for people. Our team out did themselves serving, with great love. Our prophetic artists really connected with the people who stopped by their tables.
People wept, laughed, hugged and were amazed by the love and goodness of a Father who knew them well.
I saw a man pushing a walker and using a cane. I began a conversation with LeRoy and he told me his story.
He was injured in one of the Gulf Wars. Seems they were on a recon mission and were driving down a road. They saw a plastic bag ahead so they stopped, and shot the bag. Nothing happened, so they drove past the area.
At some point down the road they realized they were going in the wrong direction so had to turn around. As they drove back past the bag… KA BOOM! an IED blew up.
LeRoy was injured, his pelvic area, his legs, his back were damaged and he received concussion damage to his head and internal organs.
LeRoy told me he knew why he was alive. He told me just before this mission he wrote PS 91 on a piece of paper and carried it under his shield, his front body armor.
It was an amazing story. LeRoy was a joyful man. I had the honor of praying for him and seeing the Holy Spirit touch his life. We hugged.
He then went into our store to pick up presents for his kids.
As she waited upon the Holy Spirit she began to draw. She was impressed to draw… you guessed it… a shield and then wrote PS 91 as she spoke encouragement into his life.
He was totally stunned, amazed, and greatly encouraged. As he got up to leave, he folded the drawing, and placed it under his coat near his heart. Boom! That’s the love and goodness of God in action! Awesome!
This is just one story of many. Almost 200 families were helped this year with free presents for their kids.
James Capital Alliance, Inc were our sponsors for yet another year. They believe in helping the less served of our community. I give them a special thanks.
